Watch Out, Lobsters; Here We Come!

We leave early tomorrow morning for 10 days in Maine and then three days in the mountains of New Hampshire.  We have rented a house on the water near Booth Bay Harbor.  Water view and a working fireplace were our requirements.  Does that tell you what we will do?  Sit and read (plus needlepoint for me); look at the water and enjoy a fire every night in the cool weather; plus eat lots of lobster, of course.  And I know my chef, Gorman, will be doing some cooking.   We have been to Maine several times and we like taking little field trips some days and exploring the area.  Other days we’ll just relax and do nothing.

Gorman has completed the latest five-day round of Temodar and has felt just fine the whole time; thank you Lord!  As everyone knows, he usually has a few days of feeling lousy, fatigue and nausea but he has none of that this time and we are thanking God for that.  In the past, because of the clinical trial guidelines, he has had to take the Temodar in the mornings but they have told us that he now can begin taking it at night before bedtime.  That seems to work better, such that he can “sleep it off” so maybe that has helped lessen his symptoms.  Anyway, he has been cooking up a storm and working in the yard.  This is great!

And the best news of all:  at the end of this month, our older son, Charlie, and four-year-old grandson, Ryland, are coming for a visit.  Gorman is so cute;  he is already planning the fishing trip.

While I will probably not have any posts for the next two weeks, just know that Gorman is feeling good, that we are happy and having fun!

    That is such wonderful news. I am so happy for you both to be able to travel and just relax. Just what the doctor ordered. Enjoy your vista with Charlie and your grandson.
